echo "f8" > /etc/kbdtype


man -k keyboard gives (among other things):
 kcon (1) - keyboard control and remapping for the pcvt driver
 keycap (5) - keyboard mapping data base

1. Newbie newbie newbie

Sorry to bother you all but I am not a regular LINUX user. I got myself a
version of a program called "Smoothwall" which turns an old computer system
into a firewall. (although it was a system made of mostly old components I
did put in a brand new hard disk)

When I installed the smoothwall software I didnt know that the embedded
LINUX would place some data on my hard disk's boot sector. I am now left
with a hard disk that cannot be used for a windows installation. Even after
deleting all the non-dos partitions and reformatting the disk it still has
some LINUX hiding away on it.

Can somebody please tell me a way to erase the data on the boot sector so as
to restore the disk to its out-of-the-box condition and ready to use for

Any assistance will be greatfully accepted
